  • Should a SIEM or EDR solution be managed by a third party?
  • Does it pay to integrate known vulnerabilities into SIEM cases and rules?
  • What role do you see SIEM playing in Zero Trust?
  • How are folks making decisions on what data to centralize into their SIEM?
  • What about running multiple different SIEMs, have you seen that work in practice?
  • Where do you see UEBA fitting into the next generation SIEMS? Any specific use cases you think are key?
  • What is your opinion on retention of data in your SIEM? How long should you retain and why?
  • Should you pay for threat intelligence feeds for the SIEM?
  • Should we use the kill chain framework or MITRE ATT&CK to develop use cases?
